The most beautiful restaurant! We visited here whilst staying in the Borgo Petrognano opposite. The staff are so friendly and helpful but I fell that another staff member would be good as service was slow when the restaurant was busy. The setting is beautiful with a gorgeous garden setting and the tables are decorated beautifully. The cats and dog are... More

We were staying across the street and lucky for us, this was a good restaurant because we did not want to travel too far for dinner. We ended up eating there twice, and had some great wine and food. to try something different, I tried the pigeon and it was excellent. We even made friends with the cat.

This was the nearest restaurant to the villa we stayed in 'Borgo Petrognano' just a 5 minute walk away, the owners and staff are very friendly and the food superb, we visited three times during our stay, the place is large, it has beautiful gardens and a kids area, well worth a visit.

We had not been to this restaurant for many years. So many of our favourite restaurants in the Chianti area have closed their doors in the last couple of years. We had heard from residents in the area that this restaurant was still in the same family hands and that the quality of the food and the service was still... More

If you come in this season, you will immediately notice the wonderful roses everywhere in the restaurant gardens....simply stunning! We had dinner in the small tower which is definitely charming and very cozy. Food is very good and portions are huge. Their antipasto platter is truly big and filling (tempura veggies were a bit salty, othern than that...perfect!) so don't... More

The dishes were plated very nicely and looked professional, though parts of the main course which was Pork was still red (raw) in the middle. When we told the waiter he did seem shocked that it was indeed served raw, so he took the dish away... He did offer another dish, though at that point everyone else had already eaten,... More

The restaurant is located deep in Tuscany green hills and it is so relaxing sip a glass of wine outside watching the countryside. The owners are so kind and they greet you feeling you are at home....romantic for couple;perfect for families ( with dedicated space for kids); nice for a lunch with friends...of course food is traditional, well cooked...amazing!

We had last visited three years ago and couldn't wait to return. The menu changed from then since there is now a new owner. We ordered the cheese plate with three jams, which was excellent!! I ordered the beef with radicchio and Rosemary which was also excellent. My wife ordered the Pici ( thick spaghetti) with a beef sauce. Which... More
